Northwestern Mutual Signs Lease at Liberty Center for 8,000-Square-Foot Office to Accommodate for Growth

Northwestern Mutual is announcing that it will move its West Chester office into Liberty Center, providing it with room to meet its recruiting and growth objectives. Northwestern Mutual – West Chester is the first official office tenant in Liberty Center.

The leading financial security company recently signed a 10-year lease for about 8,000 square feet at Liberty Center, a new 100,000-square-foot, four story office building. In late February or early March of 2016, Northwestern Mutual – West Chester will relocate its office, led by Managing Director and Wealth Management Advisor Jeffrey Gayonski, CLTC.

Gayonski says this expansion is attributable to increased demand for comprehensive financial planning.

“People are realizing that they can’t go at it alone, that they need a trusted financial professional who can help get them on a path to meet their long-term financial goals,” says Gayonski. “Our financial representatives help people sort through the clutter to meet their financial goals and aspirations.”

Northwestern Mutual’s 2015 Planning and Progress Study demonstrates the need for more financial advisors.

  • 62 percent of Cincinnati area residents think their financial planning needs improvement.
  • 26 percent of residents are not at all confident they can achieve their financial goals.
  • Only 22 percent have sought advice from an advisor/financial planner
  • Only 16 percent have developed a written financial plan

“We’re committed to helping our clients find long-term financial security, and our new office will help enable us to meet their needs,” Gayonski says. ”We wanted space to grow and easy access for our clients. Liberty Center is a great location to grow our business and serve our clients.”

Gayonski says that his organization plans to recruit eight new Northwestern Mutual Financial Representatives and 15 interns in 2016.

Jeff Gayonski and Brent Shaw’s Commitment to Community Prepares Families for Life-Changing Event

Having a child brings new joys and responsibilities. Through its commitment to helping people forge a path of financial security during each stage of life, Jeff Gayonski and Brent Shaw announced a $100,000 gift to the UC Health West Chester Hospital’s maternity unit through the Exceptional Beginnings Initiative.

The maternity unit focuses on enhanced patient experiences and includes eight delivery rooms, and two operating and triage rooms. The adjacent nursery functions as a Level IIB neonatal intensive care unit.

“Each day we help our clients prepare their finances so they can accomplish their dreams,” said Shawn Kelley, managing partner, Northwestern Mutual-Cincinnati. “A new child is a dream of many, and we’re honored to donate to West Chester Hospital so that future generations can have the best possible start in life.”

The office’s involvement at the hospital expands beyond this gift. Two of the office’s wealth management advisers, Brent Shaw and Jeff Gayonski, teach a class for parents-to-be on what their financial priorities should be before a child arrives.

The Exceptional Beginnings Initiative calls upon community businesses and individual donors to give to new maternity unit as a way of impacting the future of the community.
